Virgin Atlantic is a British airline that operates long-haul flights from London to destinations in North America, the Caribbean, Africa, the Middle East, and Asia. The airline has been trying to accommodate the need to express an individual’s true identity under “Be Youself” agenda. In fact, the airline’s travelers whose passports have gender-neutral markers can choose gender codes like “U”, “X”, or “Mx” on their tickets. Recently, the airline announced that its cabin crew, pilots, and ground staff can now choose the uniform they feel most comfortable in. For example, the uniforms aren’t categorized only under male and female. This gender identity policy is intended to allow the airline’s employees to express who they truly are. The happier the employees become, the better they perform. From the passenger’s viewpoint, how they are serviced seems more important than how they are represented.
